“We’ve turned into tribal, angry, vengeful people” Tim Robbins on how he moved through COVID to a new understanding

Published on

It’s truly remarkable how different sources of information have been leading most of the western world down two different paths, each getting further away from the other.

Most often we experience this ourselves in the way we interact with people differently since the beginning of the COVID pandemic.  Those who rely most heavily on mainstream media for information form vastly different opinions from those who’ve moved on to alternative media sites and podcasts.  Unfortunately the gulf between former friends, colleagues and often even family members has turned emotional, and visceral.  Often relationships have broken down completely.

As time goes on and we approach the third Christmas season since the pandemic began, most people have remained embedded in their separate camps.  Families and friendships remain divided. Something eerie lurks just off in the background as we approach the joyous Christmas holidays with more tension than we’d like to admit.

So it’s a joyous yet ominous feeling as we edge closer to holiday reunions with people we haven’t in many months, or even years now. Some will delicately and skillfully avoid serious conversation. Others will dabble in it and break it off as it becomes too uncomfortable. And some of us will surely be involved in legendary holiday blowouts that will drive this wedge even deeper.

Perhaps we need to take a trip to the United Kingdom. In this compelling segment of an interview between podcaster Russell Brand and Tim Robbins, the Academy Award winning actor describes how a trip to England resulted in a change in his outlook toward all the information dividing our “tribal” camps.  As Robbins explains, in the UK there’s more “tolerant attitude towards the diversity of opinion” that seems to be sorely lacking in North America.
